06/23/2002: "Night At The Movies"

Archived Entry:
Friday night at about 9PM I went with moO, my sister and Ronny to the drive-in. Holy crap, the drive-in? How long ago have you last been to the drive-in? The last time I went to the drive in was when I was like six years old. We took separate cars 'cause we didn't want to sit in the back since it'd be hard to see. Good thing too because we wanted to see different movies and was able to .

So, we started out the night with Minority Report. PG-13 2 hr. 24 min. Wow, that was actually worth the money! Go see it! Spoiler? Click & Drag Heh, this will show up on iCHAOSi.com but not on GotAdam.com.... What bothered me was the fact that the title was Minority Report and when it came down to it, the Minority Report either didn't exist, or wasn't really even important to the story. I suppose it was important, just not used... Overall a really kick @$$ movie!

Second, we saw Scorpion King PG-13 1 hr. 29 min. Great action, ok story, GREAT actors... Ok, not the acting itself, as the dialogue came up a little short (it was an action movie, for goodness sakes). I'm sure the story itself is made up with the action... AND the actors. Primarily Kelly Hu... I guess the Rock too. Probably not winning any academy awards with this one, but hey, thumbs up!

We drove over to see Bourne Identity PG-13 1 hr. 58 min. I felt I was let down tremendously with this one. I mean it was a good idea, but the actual movie itself fell short of a good movie. I really believed it was gonna be a good one, but after we left it, I felt that it was too repetitive. He ran, they'd find where he was, he ran to find a new place to hide, they find him, and so on. I felt that the writers couldn't really get a good end to the whole redundancy and it kept going on and on. However, the end was a good one. See it if you have spare time.

Ok, as you might have guessed. We did some theatre hopping. Seeing 3 movies in one sitting is really taxing on a body. At the end of the night it was about 4 am. That's about 7 hours of sitting. I had a HUGE headache while driving home. It felt like a bad hangover. Overall, Minority Report - A, Scorpion King - B+, Bourne Identity - C+
